My point to "tammy robbins" is that, no, everyone is not doing meth. Probably a few families and certain social circles have been freaking stupid enough to play with something that can hook and kill them or their family members.
But don't you go pinning that kind of stupidity on all our families. Yes, we have too many freaking losers who can make those choices, but don't insult all Johnson County.

. Back up and read it again ding dong. Tammy was not saying all families are sitting there on the couch holding hands + doing meth. She said many families have some type of experience with this drug whether its a friend or cousin or a friends cousin we all know the consequences of this drug. Sometimes Tammy we need to break it down into tiny little details for the meth heads so they don't get all offensive.

Actually she said "almost every family"--- she was over the top, so both she AND you want to see meth heads everywhere. As in your last sentence!

Not everybody is into this! The truly self-destructive people and dead-enders and the truly stupid, vapid, empty lemming-types get into this. I repeat, don't pin this behavior on everybody and "almost every family"!

This is what happens when there are those out there that think the rules and the law doesn't apply to them. Everyone knows that methamphetamine is an illegal substance and it is ILLEGAL for a reason! However, I believe in second chances. If these people are willing to change and go through extensive counseling to straighten out their lives, then I feel like it should be offered to them, after they spend some time in prison to reflect upon their mistakes and choices to make,destribute and use!

I had a doctor tell me that meth was the one drug you can NEVER get off of. Even herion addicts will eventually burn out if it doesn't kill them first, but meth is a forever addiction. Especialy the new "shake and bake" variety. How stupid would you have to be to try this crap?

Believe in second chances all you want but obviously you don't know much about Meth. It is one that has a high percentage rate of killing you before you are ever cured. The only hope is to get to the ones that haven't tried it yet and try to save them.

Try to save THEM? Do we each one save one by tying them up? Sounds like some here in the county are so stupid they would chew out of the ropes so they can go try it.

I can't belive the woman from State Farm Insurance was in this. There is nobody good in this world.
Ya know, you sound deeply hurt and let down, especially to be the first two cents on this discussion. Trust me, i'm no fan of meth, but I bet this in no way even indirectly affected your life negatively that you know of. In fact, it gave you something to do today. You got to run your mouth and say something real intelligent on the matter. This is what bothers you about the situation, that the next time you go pay your insurance, that you will have to wonder if that woman is in any way even remotely associated with your car insurance. I'm sure State Farm had no problem with her work ethic and they probably have a strict policy on starting up meth labs at work, so rest easy. She was just there to make her wages. Anyone to make the thoughtless statement you made couldn't have the mental capacity to even work a job that pays actual money unless you can just suck a mean D!@# but you sound like more of the bulldyke type. It's true, there are very few good people in this world. Nothing says she is a bad person, just a lawbreaker.
